Mother’s Day is this Sunday and while it is a day to celebrate moms, I believe it is also a day to celebrate the people that made us mothers. I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate Mother’s day than with my family. I want to make it a day that we are all together doing things that we love to do.
Last year was my first Mother’s Day with two kids. Avery was only a few months old at the time and the only thing that I wanted to do the entire day was sleep. We were still in the newborn and not sleeping stage and I was so exhausted from getting up several times in the middle of the night. This year, with everyone older, I can’t wait to get out of bed and enjoy our day together. There are so many ways to spend mother’s day with your family, it’s hard to pick just one!
